||Sawyers—buzz saws that chase you down—can either be avoided with a quick jump or inhaled so Kirby can copy their cutter power.”
|— Description • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Official Strategy Guide (Prima)|
Sawyer is an enemy appearing in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It greatly resembles a buzz saw blade with a single red eye and moves back and forth in a set pattern. If inhaled, it gives the Cutter ability.
In level 6-1, a giant Sawyer appears as a mid-boss. It will hide underground, then pop up and try to hit Kirby. Two Bronto Burts will appear in the area for Kirby to use as ammo against it.
Certain moves, such as Needle, Super Electric Energy Field and Drill can reach Giant Sawyer even while it's underground.
Sawyers have almost the exact same appearance as the Grinder enemies from Super Mario World and Super Mario Galaxy 2, and behave very similar.
